Linkedin is boring & resumes are antiquated. All my info is here.

Taking full advantage of the first post-Covid Summer season to spend as much time outside as possible: hiking, photographing bugs and plants, taking Nika to the beach, and getting back on rollerblades for the first time since I was a kid. Also continuing to improve on my first attempts at Aquaponics! 🌱🐟

Summer is for skinned knees and sunburns, mosquito bites and bruises, dirt under your nails and the sun on your face. It is a full-contact sport.

My late grandmother, Patricia Richardson, was an honored leader, teacher & storyteller in her community. Thanks to her influence, (and my mom's dedication) I grew up immersed in Native American culture, dancing competitively in traditional regalia and selling handmade arts at Pow-Wows throughout my childhood.

Where did the eyeball come from? My branding was inspired by the idea of simply having a clear vision--of myself, my goals, and human potential. There are also two "eyes" in the pronunciation of my name!

When I attended art school in Scotland at the University of Edinburgh, I developed a style of digital illustration based on traditional stained glass and applied to mythological themes. I called it Shatterwork. I was the only one in my class experimenting with digital illustration and my teachers hated it. They gave me horrible grades. I kept doing it anyway.
